Media bad apples

March 28, 2004

High-QUALITY stuff here ("It's Not Easy to Wean Media from Anonymous Sources," by David Shaw, March 21). I agree wholeheartedly. The fact is, and as a journalist it kills me, that alleged journalists such as Jayson Blair have ruined it for all of us. In the past, the media had at least a shred of credibility, but today, we're constantly trying to prove that we aren't making up stories or sources. It's like the legal system -- the burden of proof rests with the prosecution. In the media, though, we're the defense, and we're trying to prove ourselves.
